This was the only Dead show I ever attended, I wasn't much of a fan. I lived in Maine. I went with my brother, who was Deadhead all the way down and had followed them up from New York. My brother thought this was a great show. I ran into a guy a couple of years later at Binghamton University, (still called SUNY Binghamton at the time) who said that he had been to about fifty shows and this was the best.

What I remember most was how everybody was totally surprised and amazed by "Day Tripper". Also the legendary beautiful Deadhead women, who were all over the place, and, after the show some poor kid who was lying on the floor being worked on by paramedics. He was naked. I wonder just how that happens.

No rating because I haven't actually listened to the recording yet. It's downloading right now.

I find this Oades production very satisfying. With a little tweaking of bass, treble and volume, this show sounds really good with no flaws or glitches. An excellent audience recording.

Just another great example of why the Grateful Dead rule :) killer first set....the second set is where it's at...the "Iko" to start just smokes...Jerry is shredding it apart...right into a rockin "Samson"...and the "Day Tripper" to close it out is a nice surprise in a year full of surprises. thanks to all responsible for these great shows!

Subject: first show
went to this show with this guy Derf from my school. He din't have any facial hair it was wierd. He acted tough and stuff, yelled 'Dark Star' a lot during China Doll. I think he was lite in his loafers. Wonder where he is today. Great show.

This recording is very good but I think our's was crisper because the Nakamichi shotguns cut down on the extremely excited crowd noise. The other recording which is soundboard is great, but it's only the 2nd.set.

This show reminds me or a true story:
Our 1st time in Portland Maine, we arrived the night before and checked into the Sonesta Hotel. The next morning we were thrown-out and the manager said he would call every hotel in the city and tell them to deny us a room.

No problem. I had a back-up reservation at the Sheraton Towers where the band was staying.

We checked-in, rode down the elevator before soundcheck with Billy, saw Bob out front and headed back into Portland.

Inside we found a Nakamichi patch for our group's D6 and then headed to the back of the floor.Just before "Music" started playing things started turning plaid. The "Candyman" and "Loser" sent chills thru me.

The energy level inside this small arena was so high it was scary. So much in fact that my friend "Jack Straw" was getting a bit too high. So during intermission I walked him to some upper level seats behind Brent to chill out.

The "Aiko/Samson" was a barn-burner. The He's Gone was very upbeat which then went into "I Need a Mirrorful" which was a bomb-dropping thumper.

Then Jerry went into "China Doll" which sounded like nobody but Jerry wanted to play this. Talk about a buzz-kill! Then it was just Jerry and drumz for a jam.

Anywho, the party was back on again when they cranked-up "The Wheel". Then the April Fool's jokes: Back-wards "Playing In The Band" into "Day Tripper". My friend Jack was back to normal. What a mind-blower.

After the "U.S. Blues" we exited the venue and went straight back to the Sheraton because it had started snowing, heavy.

Things were unusually quiet in the lobby area. We repaired up to our room and started listening to the show and playing acoustics.

Around 2am the phone rings. It was a person with a California accent who was looking for someone who had previously occupied our room. He sounded like he was looking for some people who were up. We were up so Tully invited him down for a visit. He accepted.

My friend "Tully" hung up the phone and said "I think Brents on his way down". A few seconds later Brent was in our room, drinking Bud cans (which he loved) and telling us the funniest stories of how he would beg Phil to sing.

He also said that he and his wife were expecting a baby soon and he gave her a call on our phone.

At one point during the 2 hours I told him that I thought the show was historic except for the "China Doll" which I thought it was the worst one I ever heard. He agreed and called it weak. He said "I don't know why Jerry played that".

After he left we were all in disbelief. Did this whole day really happen to us? Was "Playin" backwards, did Bobby sing prick teaser or big teaser. Were we mass hallucinating?

Thank you Sonesta Hotel for kicking us out. You made our trip unforgetable.
